Shocking admission from the former executive editor of the New York Slimes

Howell Raines, former NYT editor uses the pages of liberal Washington Post to express his general dissatisfaction with Fox News in general,  and Roger Ailes, chief of Fox News, in particular. His biggest complaint was that Fox refused to follow the footsteps of the Mainstream Media and become Obama's lapdog - and instead chose to be openly critical of our God-President and his policies. What once was proudly called "the highest form of patriotism" evidently became a target of scorn and derision from the NYT.

According to Howell, any criticism of the Anointed One is pure unadulterated evil, while any and all expression of love towards our God-in-Charge is traditional, honest journalism. With these standards, it's not surprising the Howell is pissed and the NYT is slowly dying.

The biggest source of Howell's irritation was Fox's public pronouncement that Obama's health care reform was unpopular among American people. Howell goes as far a calling it a "uber-lie" - while later in his article conceding that majority of Americans are against the health-care reform. How can a "uber-lie" be factually accurate is unclear - but that does not stop Howell from calling his fellow journalists to publicly lynch the wicked dissenter from the liberal media.

One of the most ironic parts of the article demands Howell's liberal friends to denounce Rupert Murdoch and proclaim "that Murdoch does not belong to our team". It's a bit unnerving to see a liberal extremist proclaim that he and his friend does not see the other side as their friends - and expect the other side to react with anything but a giggle. I am quite curious to know why would anyone smart and decent want to be in Howell's team? And I wonder why Howell is oblivious to the simple truth that Murdoch and scores of dissident journalists actually do NOT like his team, because they view his team of liberal propagandists and well-financed liars as a scourge of the nation.

And just one day later, Andrea Mitchell, a "reporter" for (P)MSNBC (same one which has its reporters reduce themselves in public paroxysms of orgasm during the Obama speeches) was in tears and begging a democratic congressperson to vote for Obamacare. She pleaded with Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) during her 1 PM show to support the health care reform: "Bottom line, what happens if you don't get health care for this president is, this is really all-or-nothing for the sense of his power, his legacy, he's invested so much in this, in this first year. You've got to get this for him."

I have a hunch that Howell Raines will not be howling against MSNBC for its liberal slant, and he won't be asking the journalists to criticize Andrea Mitchell. Any liberal volunteers to bet money against my prediction?

I believe the most shocking detail of this article was Howell's announcement at the very top of the article that he discovered within himself what he dubbed a "professional conscience". I believe his next article will shine some light on what profession is so low that even Howell has the tenecity to proclaim that he got its conscience.

I wouldn't be surprised if the Chosen One and his minions are not behind this latest attack on Fox.

To me it smells of Astoturf just like the coffee party

Well put. I have dreams of a sane nation taking these imposters away in shackles.

Actually, watching them all unemployed and victims of government run healthcare might be more satisfying...

I totally agree Fox news is really pretty scuzzy. They try hard but are just too amateurish and flashy, not professional enough. On-the-other-hand the rest of the MSM are - - - - - - - - - - - OK, Fox news isn't so bad after all.
